How to Enter

All submissions should be submitted no later than 16 May 2018

Firms are required to submit a document detailing why they should win a given category. Specific details for each category are detailed on the categories tab. Entries must be submitted in Word format and as a rule of thumb, between two and three pages is the optimum length.


This year senior journalists will judge the entries. The editorial team will then make a shortlist of the top two or three candidates in each category to interview. We may contact entrants subsequently as well if more information is required. We are also asking you to include client testimonials (See below)

Client Testimonials:

Entrants are asked to include client testimonials. Please aim to include testimonials from at least three clients, commenting on work you did with them over the past 12 months. Client names will not be revealed in the award write-ups.

Entry Structuring:

Your entry can be structured as you wish, but should include milestones from the previous 12 months, including key metrics such as revenue statistics, issuance volumes or assets under management; a thematic discussion of the firm's achievements over that time; and case studies that demonstrate how particular problems were overcome, how a certain deal was structured, or where you believe outstanding client service was provided.

To give entrants the best opportunity of winning, we urge you to showcase everything you're most proud of from the past 12 months - be it landmark deals, client wins or the successful navigation of a thorny risk management problem. In turn, it gives our judging panel a chance to reward entrants on the basis of a greater breadth of information.

The deadline is 16th May 2018. Late submission will only be considered at the editor's discretion. Any questions on submissions should directed to



Good luck!
